Trust is the essential foundation of every relationship. And, in an organization, trust is fundamental – particularly given trends such as job-sharing, telecommuting, and virtual teams. The concept seems so simple, but how do you train on trust? Build a relationship based on trust – it's the cornerstone of any successful organization, especially in today's world of job-sharing, telecommuting, and virtual teams. But building trust isn't always easy. That's why we've developed Trust: The Ultimate Test, a comprehensive training program backed by scientific research and industry experts. Our program will guide you through the best practices and ways to build trust in teams and ultimately drive success for your organization.

Trust: The Ultimate Test is a powerful tool for helping facilitators explore this sensitive issue – without arousing defensiveness. There simply is no other product like it available today.

How it works

Through Trust's 24-item assessment and its insight on the dimensions of trust-related behaviors, participants find a deeper understanding of trust, which they can apply to their individual, team, and organizational relationships.

Learning outcomes

By the end, participants will:

  • Learn ways to build trust in teams.
  • Identify one's individual tendency to trust.
  • Understand the factors that affect the decision to trust.
  • Discover four groups of behavior that indicate trust.
  • Learn how to improve one’s trust level.

With this knowledge, participants can actively work towards improving their trust level, thereby increasing productivity and improving decision making abilities.

Uses and applications

Trust: The Ultimate Test is appropriate to use with individuals as well as teams. The assessment is particularly helpful for these situations:

  • One or more low-trust relationships are hurting an entire team's productivity
  • You want to provide intensive, one-on-one coaching for leaders
  • Two peers need to address the issue of trust in their relationship
  • You want to assess readiness for alternative work arrangements, such as telecommuting

The instrument is effective when used as a stand-alone instrument as well as a component of a larger training program.
